LONDON— Our new


software release (version 4.3) moves the technology forward on all fronts – powerful new features, unique triple headed displays and a sea change in responsiveness and productivity. Software releases are rarely as comprehensive as Baselight 4.3 and often focus on a particular area of functionality. This version however, has a number of transforming changes including: Intelligent render caching that transforms the responsiveness for both the colourist and the client. It’s a software solution that feels like moving ahead a generation in hardware power because render intensive processes can be controlled by the user within the timeline to massively speed up previews and deliverables. The new object based Area Tracker dispenses with the complexity of multiple tracking points by allowing the user to simply pick an object while the software identifies its boundaries, and allows for scaling and rotation while automatically applying the grade. It has been benchmarked with great success in difficult scenes against competitive systems and proved much simpler, faster and more reliable. Up to three separate UI monitors can be added, each being fully user configurable to show any desired arrangement of panels including the new built-in waveform and vectorscope monitoring tools.

In addition we have redesigned an already comprehensive 3D toolset to make it easier and quicker to use by automating and streamlining operations such as geometry alignment and convergence adjustments . These are made clearer by simplified timeline management that removes the scope for errors. It’s a feature release , a productivity release AND makes its debut with the game changing technology of the new control panel – Blackboard 2 (Press release - Blackboard 2). We will be demonstrating Baselight 4.3 and other products at Stand 7.F31.
